This was our 1st time here and we definitely enjoyed it. They offer bread while waiting for your appetizers, but I really like that they do not give a bowl of it. They give you one, which is freshly baked, and a little butter on the side. This way you don't fill up on bread. I ordered the salad with apples and goat cheese and my husband ordered the tomato bisque. Both we're delicious, and for my husband not being a tomato fan, that is saying alot. He also commented it was a good serving size knowing he has a steak coming. They seafood Jambalaya was really good as well and the fish was cooked perfectly. Only complaint, the shrimp was a little over cooked, but it didn't hinder the meal at all. We didn't finish because we wanted to share a dessert. The white and dark chocolate moouse was rich, best to share it if you don't cant handle too much richness. I liked my mojito more than the pomegranate margarita. We would definitely come back, there are a few other items we would like to try. More

The outdoor bar looked so appealing; however, they were so short staffed, I didn’t even get a “hello.” I sat there for 15 minutes watching bartenders walk back and forth passed me without even looking up. At one point I said “hi!” Ignored. The customers next to me laughed...I had to laugh too. Fortunately, very few customer were at the inside bar. I hope they hire more people for the outside. More

I ordered a softshell crab BLT and asked to have the crab served on the side. After the waiter understood my request, he said fine. the crab was good, but the BLT was terrible. It was served without bacon and with one puny slice of tomato. We asked for lemon for the water right away, but had to ask again, along with a request for bacon. more careful attention needs to be paid to plating. (it was very quiet that day; outdoor tables were only half full.) More

House-made flour tortillas were delicious. I had a happy hour margarita and it was very good as well. My husband and I enjoyed our dinners. We ate outside. There were a lot of birds flying in and out of the dining area, so be forewarned. The outside dining was a bit noisy. The staff was friendly and helpful. More

I loved this place! Had a wonderful date night here - the place is beautiful with lots of very different seating options to choose from. The food was really delicious (we got the salmon ceviche and the mussels, which had such a good sauce my guy asked for a spoon ;) I really enjoyed sitting out in the back patio area, but fair warning... the canal is drained right now. It was still gorgeous sitting back there in a warm spring night, however, the standing water created a mosquito problem. They all swarmed my date and we had to go inside, but no one else seemed affected and we had a good laugh about it. Would not let this deter you bc the atmosphere, service, and food was still so great! More

Our dinner was amazing! We sat outside on the deck, right along the Potomac. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I ordered the caprese salad for an appetizer and it was big enough to split with another person. I ordered the soft shell crabs for my main course and they were absolutely perfect- not chewy at all. We didn’t have to wait too long for our food and didn’t feel rushed at all. I would definitely recommend this place! More
